Round Played: with Chris Eggleston –
By Wayne Halm –
Just another routine birdie –
On April 7th 2015 I played the Kauai Lagoons Golf Club with Chris Eggleston from Boise, Idaho. (Click on the pictures for a larger view – then use the browser ‘back’ button.)
We played as a two-some and on the 5th hole we caught up with the group in front. They tried to wave us through.
The group ahead putted out and move to the 6th tee. We finished the hole and they again asked us if we wanted to play through – we accepted.
Chris will tell you that he has a baseball swing – I will tell you that he hits the ball a long way. However, as the video below shows, it doesn’t always work out well – but even then he laughs about it. (click on the picture below to watch the video)
Chris is a fun character – a collection of contrasts really. Note his reaction to the ocean below.
Now compare that picture to his reaction to making a birdie putt on 16 in the video below. (click on the picture below to watch the video)
I honestly believe that if I hadn’t cheered a little he would have simply walked back to the cart and written a 3 on the card – just another routine birdie!
This was another great day on the golf course – we laughed, we joked, and we got to know each other. It was the way golf should be.
Come play golf with me.
